I should have listened to myself and kept Win 7 running, But I listened to MS about the but they discovered where some folders had the wrong security Etc Etc. So I downloaded a new copy from MS burned the DVD and now just like before it is a puzzle to get running again. Here is what I have and I hope there are some people that can help / learn from my experience. First Win 7 is nice smooth and fast (I had it running already after 5 hours of installing it before I tried to install it again) Anyway Dell 2650 Power edge Server, 2 GB Ram SCSI 160 HDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, Broadcom Extreme GB NICS and a Xeon Proc. OK here comes the informative stuff. On the first install it kept hanging at 3%, 5%, 9% and I gave up several times, however if you be patient and I do mean be patient it continues installing. The first time it took over 5 hours do a clean install, I tried the upgrade but it said it could not do an upgrade for me so I wiped the drives, then formatted them with Win 7, Seems it must have its own 100MB partition for some reason. Anyway after I got it running I had to manually get the drivers for just about everything until I got it online then it was pretty smooth. Now I am installing it again and I am getting all kinds of Ã¢â‚¬Å“canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find drivers for HDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, CD/DVD/NICÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m surprised it finds the mouse driver. So moving on it still takes 20 mins+ before I get to the select your language screen and the HDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and DVD lights do nothing which makes you think the system has froze. Once you continue it goes very slow, I have no idea what the software is doing for hours while expanding files but there is nothing to backup or save as the drives have been wiped prior and formatted. After that you can almost expect to see you need this driver and that one for simple devices like the ones mentioned above. I find this odd because the install has the drivers already in the drives folder it just does not look there for them???? Then on occasion you will get the canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find the data files to install, this is even more odd cause it wrote the data to the disks already, this could be a timeout. And donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t bother trying to set the bios to install O/S on a Dell Poweredge cause it reduces the ram to 256MB and Win7 needs, wants and demands a min of 512MBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s. So this is where I am at if anyone knows a quicker way please do share. I know it will run on this machine as I have done it before MS updated the RC and it is worth the efforts to use it for 13 months free at least this time IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll know what to tell my users in 2 years when itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the only O/S that comes pre installed. Thanks for reading and good luck.
